The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is sponsoring a workshop on June 2 and 3 to discuss technical barriers to our ability to accurately measure, report and verify greenhouse gas emissions, a critical issue in addressing a major factor in climate change.
The Greenhouse Gas Emissions Quantification and Verification Strategies Workshop, to be held at Scripps Seaside Forum in La Jolla, Calif., aims to create a dialog among scientific and industrial experts concerning the best ways to measure, report and verify greenhouse gas emissions from varied sources both in local areas and globally. These insights will form the basis for a consensus document, which will outline the key recommendations for quantifying emissions and verification strategies for the future.
Among the main questions for consideration at the workshop will be:
